The main difference between a battery charge and an assault charge is the actual presence of harm and the threat of harm . Someone can only be charged with battery if they have caused real physical harm to someone, while a person can be charged with assault if the mere threat of harm is present.

A cell is a single unit of device that converts chemical energy into electrical energy. A battery is a collection of cells that converts chemical energy into electrical energy .
Batteries must be labelled with the crossed out wheeled bin symbols (shown below) to help consumers choose batteries and recycle them: Cd, Hg and Pb underneath the wheelie bin symbol shows whether the battery contains, cadmium (Cd), mercury (Hg) or lead (Pb).
An electrical cell is an "electrical power supply ". It converts stored chemical energy into electrical potential energy, allowing positive charges to flow from the positive terminal to the negative one through an external circuit. This is called a current.
A cell is a single electrical energy source which uses chemical reactions to produce a current . An electrical cell is an 'electrical power supply'. It converts stored chemical energy into electrical potential energy.
Second method: You have to look at the top of the battery . Usually, batteries have removable tops or caps unless you find "sealed" written on the label if they are liquid lead-acid type. Gel-filled type and AGM lead-acid batteries are designed with flat tops from which the positive and negative endpoints emerge.
